At 7:00 PM on May 14, Ingram Planetarium presents a virtual program called River in Heaven: An Exploration of Asian Astronomy. Ingram Planetarium Manager Kat Hunt has been invited by the Emil Buehler Planetarium at Seminole State College in Florida to collaborate on a virtual program featuring the contributions of Asia and Asian Americans to astronomy. Part of a series of programs that feature diversity in astronomy, River in Heaven takes place appropriately in the month of May, which is nationally recognized as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
Kat Hunt has dedicated much of her study of Archaeoastronomy to that rooted in Asia as a connection to her own heritage. It brings her great joy to share the stories and contributions of Asians to astronomy with the public.
This virtual event is free to the public, but it does require pre-registration. To register, go to https://www.seminolestate.edu/planet/show-calendar.
